Cochlear implantation (CI) is an effective treatment option for patients with severe-to-profound hearing loss. When CI first started, it was recommended to wait until at least 4 weeks after the CI surgery for the initial activation because of possible complications. Advances in the surgical techniques and experiences in fitting have made initial activation possible within 24 h.

The data logs of Cochlear Nucleus cochlear implant (CI) sound processors show large interindividual variation in children's daily CI use and auditory environments. This study explored whether these di...
Our aim was to determine the effect of acute changes in cochlear place of stimulation on cochlear implant (CI) sound quality.
A cochlear implant is a small electronic device that provides a sense of sound for the user, which can be used unilaterally or bilaterally. Although there is advocacy for the benefits of binaural hear...
This study evaluated the influence of the performance of the first cochlear implant (CI-1) on the second implant (CI-2) and the significance of inter-implant intervals in children with sequential coch...
In cases with residual-hearing (RH) loss after cochlear implantation, a safe method is needed to provide full spectral resolution and as much auditory information as possible without implant replaceme...
Reducing power consumption in the cochlear implant is crucial to the development of future smaller sound processors. The commercial MP3000 sound coding strategy has been shown to be more e...
This study is a prospective, clinical study to determine if it is safe and effective to use a cochlear implant over time in individuals undergoing removal of a vestibular schwannoma (VS), ...
Background The authors' aim was to compare the influence of various electrode designs on selected objective and subjective clinical outcomes for cochlear implant recipients using the same ...
The purpose of this investigation is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of MED‐EL cochlear implants in children 7 months to 5 years, 11 months of age who fall outside the curren...
Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of an external sound. Prevalence in the general population is 10 to 15%, with tinnitus severely impacting quality of life in 1-2 percent ...
Surgical insertion of an electronic hearing device (COCHLEAR IMPLANTS) with electrodes to the COCHLEAR NERVE in the inner ear to create sound sensation in patients with residual nerve fibers.
Electronic hearing devices typically used for patients with normal outer and middle ear function, but defective inner ear function. In the COCHLEA, the hair cells (HAIR CELLS, VESTIBULAR) may be absent or damaged but there are residual nerve fibers. The device electrically stimulates the COCHLEAR NERVE to create sound sensation.
Multi-channel hearing devices typically used for patients who have tumors on the COCHLEAR NERVE and are unable to benefit from COCHLEAR IMPLANTS after tumor surgery that severs the cochlear nerve. The device electrically stimulates the nerves of cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than the inner ear as in cochlear implants.
The cochlear part of the 8th cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE). The cochlear nerve fibers originate from neurons of the SPIRAL GANGLION and project peripherally to cochlear hair cells and centrally to the cochlear nuclei (COCHLEAR NUCLEUS) of the BRAIN STEM. They mediate the sense of hearing.
The 8th cranial nerve. The vestibulocochlear nerve has a cochlear part (COCHLEAR NERVE) which is concerned with hearing and a vestibular part (VESTIBULAR NERVE) which mediates the sense of balance and head position. The fibers of the cochlear nerve originate from neurons of the SPIRAL GANGLION and project to the cochlear nuclei (COCHLEAR NUCLEUS). The fibers of the vestibular nerve arise from neurons of Scarpa's ganglion and project to the VESTIBULAR NUCLEI.
Hearing, auditory perception, or audition is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure of the surrounding medium through time, through an organ such as the ear. Sound may be heard through solid, liquid, or gaseous mat...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
